head in the ground

Using a bad body posture as a starting point Nicki Liszta studies and explores together with her dancers, the headlessness in postures and attitudes. If you take a look at evolution, the front bended posture is normal, not unhealthy and not without position – just a step on the way to straighten up. But what happens to a humans body when it stands, moves and walks,  bended for too long? How long can we stay in a headless gesture and when do we search new ways?

HEADLESS as a picture for the madness in the body and in society. The headless position inside our scale of values. A bad posture as physical state of emergency. Headless, with a stiff neck, without alternatives or simple manipulable. It is unhealthy.

The head as central point of gravity and mental control centre, is hang over without shape. Is it out off place? Are we out of the straight line? Is he normal? Or is everything ok?

A piece of cake – trailer



The house is alive. Filled with extremes. We are in its centre. With the taste of idealism on our tongue we are crossing eight flats and one basement. We discover fatalists, feminists, folklorists and many others. Does the ideal rule your life or does the life rule the ideal? Do you feed or die?
